Barnosky is Executive Director of Stanford University’s Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve and Professor Emeritus in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Author of numerous scientific publications, op eds, blog posts, and books, he has spent three decades conducting research related to past planetary changes, and what they mean for forecasting the changes to come on Planet Earth in the next few decades. His research has taken him to South America, India, China, Africa, Europe, and wild lands of the western United States, in a quest to learn how past species reacted to major environmental changes and what that tells us about the changes to come in our future.
